The Palm OS platform now runs everything from cell phones to gaming devices -- and there's not much the new multimedia and Wi-Fi enabled Palm OS "Cobalt" can't do. The platform definitely takes some getting used to, though. In this book, two extremely experienced commercial Palm developers systematically introduce both Cobalt (Palm OS 6) and its widely used predecessor, "Garnet," and present scores of insider techniques for making the most of them.
All the basics are here -- forms, user interfaces, memory management, data storage, graphics, even integrating your software with Palm's built-in applications. Everything connection-related is here, too, from Bluetooth to Web services to conduit programming (which you don't want to try without help). You'll even explore the platform's leading development tools, from CodeWarrior 9.3 to PalmSource's own PODS. Simply put, this book's breadth and depth make it indispensable.
